Bobcats bring in Collins to help with PG depth (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/basketball/nba/2010-08-06-2287011369_x.htm)

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) After a successful stint with Charlotte's summer league team, the Bobcats have reached a deal with undrafted rookie Sherron Collins to help with depth at point guard.

The two-year deal is not guaranteed, but has two triggers before January that would allow him to make the full amount of the league-minimum contract. Collins is in Charlotte to sign the deal on Friday.

The former Kansas product will join D.J. Augustin and newly signed Shaun Livingston as point guards on Charlotte's roster. The Bobcats lost last year's starter, Raymond Felton, to New York in free agency.

Collins closed the Orlando summer league last month with 32 points and hit 7 of 11 3-pointers for Charlotte against the Magic.

This just gets him into pre-season games right? I think alot of guys sign these two year non-guaranteed contracts. I wouldn't celebrate yet. Some of those pre-season rosters are 20 guys deep.

I think the 2 or 3 year contract is for people they want to retain for long evaluations. The short-term looks are signed to renewable 10 day contracts if I'm not mistaken.

Based on the game stats I saw, he wasn't doing squat.

Yea, but you suck at it.

Seriously, it was nice of a former KU coach to give a former KU player a pity contract to be the 3rd PG. That's good doughnut money.

Well hopefully Collins stays away from the BBQ and Donuts shops out there.
